When will the Parrot finally take flight??.. don't say anything in the Hamptons unless you want the world to hear !!



So, we've been waiting and waiting and waiting for the return of good mexican food to the Hamptons. I'm sure you're all thinking I'm going to be mentioning a 7-11 Bean Burrito again.. but I can't. I do love the nachos and the margaritas at La Superica in Sag Harbor but I'm not 25 and I actually like being able to hear my what my dinner companions say.. well certain dinner companions anyway.

I'm hoping BLUE PARROT will open soon. The longstanding tex-mex casa is being revised and revamped with the help of billionaire Ron Perelman, Jon Bon Jovi and Renee Zell...e...weigers..ener (I so can't spell). The current owners promise it will have the same atmosphere as the old hangout but with a new chef and better food. I personally don't remember what the food tasted like but the margaritas were amazing -- oh maybe that's why I never really tasted the food! I went by on Saturday morning.. no luck... called on Sunday... no answer and the message machine was full. Alright guys...we need guacamole now!! Open Already!!

Overheard:

A woman talking at the bar at Bobby Van's about her upbringing; "Wolves would have done a better job than my parents!"

Two twentysomething Prada Princesses eating ice cream in East Hampton village and remarking on the young woman with her much older husband and their triplets: "Those aren't children, they're a science experiment!"

At a dinner party Saturday night held by a major Hollywood big-wig: "I take care of myself.... I treat my body well... I treat it like a pharmacy."

Two "masters of the universe" discussing the new way of doing business: "I'm used to having free range in my business." - I guess that's not too bad... he could be a farmer with chickens?!
